I also had another realization: I cover a lot of “Linux-first” companies like System76 and TUXEDO Computers. Their primary focus is on Linux, but they also load up their machines with Windows. I’ve covered indie game studios that adopt the same philosophy.
And my amazing community? They’re into everything! They might dual-boot Windows for some gaming, or lean on their MacBook for music production. They also love talking about headphones, coffee, 3D printing, Apple Silicon, Android apps, robots, and pretty much anything involving a processor of some kind.
They’re open and welcoming. They have varied interests. So do I!
That’s why I’ll be transitioning the Linux For Everyone video channels into Tech For Everyone.
Tech For Everyone will be “Linux-first” but won’t be restricted to exclusively producing Linux content.
It will become an awesome hybrid of what Linux For Everyone is today, plus the video companion to what I was doing and loving at Voice.
The Linux For Everyone podcast will remain Linux For Everyone.
A shift like this opens the door to broader hardware coverage opportunities, and it more accurately reflects the REAL state of Linux in the world around us: as an incredible tool, but not one that exists as an isolated island with nothing else around it.
Perhaps “Tech For Everyone” will become the flagship? The beginnings of a new network? Whatever happens, let’s just have some fun. I want to wear my passion on my sleeve and share my enthusiasm for all kinds of tech, whether it’s powered by Linux or not.
Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.
